March Madness is upon us again.
Yesterday, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) held the fourth annual March Madness event to highlight upcoming city-led development and contracting opportunities. However, this year's event was also an opportunity for District agencies to celebrate recent successes, including the Department of Housing and Community Development putting the last of its vacant and blighted parcels in the pipeline with a huge property auction in January.
Most of the city-led projects this year will be contracting opportunities for recreation center and library developments that are already underway, including for the Southwest Library slated to break ground this summer. As for the development opportunities, UrbanTurf is previewing some of those below, all of which require that one-third of any residential units delivered be for households earning up to 30 or 50 percent of area median income.
2 Patterson Street NE
This parcel may look familiar. The 42,252 square-foot surface parking lot at 2 Patterson Street NE (map) was first introduced as a development opportunity over a decade ago as part of the Northwest One neighborhood in the New Communities Initiative. Now, a new request for proposals (RFP) for the site is slated to be released in June. The parcel is zoned D-5, creating the opportunity for high-density by-right mixed-use development that could include residential, retail, office and/or hotel.
Following the completion of the first phase of the Eden Place development last year, the contiguous lots in the 6100 block of Dix Street NE (map) are next up for a by-right development. The 18,000 square-foot parcel near the DC-Maryland border is zoned MU-4, allowing for moderate-density mixed-use. An RFP is expected to be released for the site in May.
Howard Road and Shannon Place
Across the street from the Anacostia Metro station, the 27,024 square-foot site from 1004-1018 Howard Road SE (map) is also up for an RFP in May. The location is zoned RA-1, enabling by-right residential development.
St. Elizabeth's East Parcel 15
The final parcel up for ground-up development is on the St. Elizabeth's campus, where construction is currently underway at the Monumental Entertainment and Sports Arena. The 4.2-acre lot is just steps from the Arena at 1100 Alabama Avenue SE (map) and provides an opportunity for by-right development that can serve as a mixed-use gateway to the rest of the campus. An RFP will be released next month.
